Dr. Liz grew up swimming and surfing in a lovely southern California town called Thousand Oaks, went to school in Arizona (Go Sun Devils!) to earn her Ph.D. in Psychology with a focus on behavioral neuroscience and women’s health, moved to Morgantown, WV for her postdoctoral fellowship in 2013 to study stroke and dementia, founded and directed the WVU Rodent Behavior Core shared research facility, launched her neuroscience research laboratory at WVU (Go Mountaineers!) in 2017 and finally moved to Tulane University (Roll Wave!) as an Assistant Professor.
Beyond the bench, Dr. Liz is mom to the most amazing human, partner to her longtime spouse, a brain outreach guru, a Spanish-speaking travel-loving foodie, and a roller derby diva/host of the Brains & Bruises blog.
